> Does neurontin work well for anxiety?

I think it works quite well, though it isn't instantaneous like xanax.
Do you have to take it three times a day?

I personally do in order to keep the anxiety in check and to wake up without the feeling that I am going to die!

What are its major side effects? (I have a weak stomach, so stomach upset and nausea are what I worry about the most!)
Well, I have never had a problem with it and my stomach (though if you are sensitive there, keep in mind that you can't take antacids for a few hours before or after the dose or its metabolization is inhibited).

It sometimes makes me feel kind of euhporic. It also tends to be a bit cognitively dulling at really high doses. It does appear to make you retain some water, but since the halof life is so short, it isn't a big deal.

When my anxiety was so bad that even remeron wasn't helping it, I would take some neurontin and within an hour my stomach would begin to relax and I could start talking to people.

Some people hate it, but it has been a really good drug for much so thta I forgive it for contributing to my obesity in the past.

Good luck, .
